      Trips being the 2nd nuts pretty much after 33 on flop, is it ok to bet bet bet for value?

      I like your river check/call actually, your kicker is horrible so you're nowhere near the 2nd nuts with your hand, and even tho both players look quite bad, they'll be hard pressed to call a third barrel on the river with a worse hand. Taking the chance that one of them will bluff his busted diamonds instead is fine in my opinion.

      I don't hate a jam either if you think they're horrible enough to call you down with stuff like 3x/44-99, but it's a bit optimistic.

      Hope it helps.
